The Washington State Cougars pulled off a bit of an upset last week in Wyoming as they went into Laramie and got a win that most weren’t really expecting.
San Jose State is heading into Pullman after a disappointing loss to UC-Davis.
San Jose State Spartans
Offensively, San Jose State put up one heck of a game against UC-Davis, however, their defense didn’t hold up. They allowed 44 points and just under 600 total yards.
Heading into Pullman things are going to get ugly for the Spartans. However, maybe they can keep it reasonable close if their offense shows up in this one and proves that last week wasn’t a fluke.
Washington State Cougars
Another year and another quarterback that should thrive in Mike Leach’s system. Garner Minshew played for Eastern Carolina the last couple of years, but is getting his shot with the Cougar.
Minshew acquitted himself well as threw for over 300 yards and three touchdowns against the Wyoming Cowboys who have a pretty stiff defense.
In fact, the Cowboys were the trendy upset pick last week, but the Cougars went into Wyoming and pulled away 41-19 by scoring 28 unanswered points.
Most impressively, the Cougars defense got after Wyoming and really just shut them down. The statistics will most certainly change once the Cougars head into Pac-12 play, but statistically the Cougars had a top ten defense last week.
That obviously, won’t hold up for the rest of the year, but if the Cougars can keep playing that sort of defense they will most definitely be a Pac-12 challenger.

Washington State have been prone to laying eggs early in the season. Last year they didn’t, but in 2016 they lost to Eastern Washington; in 2015, they lost to Portland State; and in 2014 they lost to Rutgers.

So, is San Jose State going to win? Well, no I wouldn’t bet on it, but just pointing out the Washington State playing like garbage is always a possibility. However, I’ll take them to cover. I don’t trust San Jose State enough.
